For the JN contest, Amanada borrowed
an idea from her mother, Julie, who is a
kindergarten teacher at Winchester
Elementary in Northville. Amanda used
colored markers to draw her menorah's
candles on coffee filters, then sprayed the
filters with water to spread the colors. The
base of the menorah was made with glue
and glitter. Julie helped cut out the candles.
Amanda proudly told the JN that this
entry "was my idea. Mom's ideas in the
past didn't win."
Julie Papo and husband Brian have •
another youngster, Josh. "He just turned 3,"
said Julie, "and isn't into coloring yet.".
Amanda Papo's winning entry earned her $100.
Winners in each age group won $18.
